The Physical Natures of Class I and Flat-Spectrum Protostellar Photospheres: A Near-Infrared Spectroscopic Study
We present high-resolution (R~=18,000), high signal-to-noise ratio, 2μm spectra of 52 IR-selected Class I and flat-spectrum young stellarobjects in the Taurus-Auriga, ρ Ophiuchi, Serpens, Perseus, andCorona Australis dark clouds. We detect key absorption lines in 41objects and fit synthetic spectra generated from pre-main-sequencemodels to deduce the effective temperatures, surface gravities, near-IRveilings, rotation velocities, and radial velocities of each of these 41sources. We find these objects to span ranges in effective temperature,surface gravity, and stellar luminosity that appear similar to those oflate spectral type Class II sources and classical T Tauri stars.However, because of significant but uncertain corrections for scatteringand extinction, the derived luminosities for the embedded protostellarobjects must be regarded as being highly uncertain. We determine thatthe mean 2 μm veiling of Class I and flat-spectrum objects issignificantly higher than that of Class II objects in the same regionwhere both types of objects are extensively observed (ρ Oph). Wefind that a significant fraction of our protostellar sample alsoexhibits emission lines. Twenty-three objects show H2emission, which is usually indicative of the presence of energeticoutflows. Thirty-four sources show H I Brγ emission, and a numberof these exhibit profile asymmetries consistent with infall. Eightsources show significant Δv=2 CO emission suggestive of emissionfrom a circumstellar disk. Overall, these observations indicate thatClass I and flat-spectrum objects are self-embedded protostarsundergoing significant mass accretion, although the objects appear tospan a broad range of mass accretion activity.Data presented herein were obtained at the W. M. Keck Observatory fromtelescope time allocated to the National Aeronautics and SpaceAdministration through the agency's scientific partnership with theCalifornia Institute of Technology and the University of California. TheObservatory was made possible by the generous financial support of theW. M. Keck Foundation.

Statistical Constraints for Astrometric Binaries with Nonlinear Motion
Useful constraints on the orbits and mass ratios of astrometric binariesin the Hipparcos catalog are derived from the measured proper motiondifferences of Hipparcos and Tycho-2 (Δμ), accelerations ofproper motions (μ˙), and second derivatives of proper motions(μ̈). It is shown how, in some cases, statistical bounds can beestimated for the masses of the secondary components. Two catalogs ofastrometric binaries are generated, one of binaries with significantproper motion differences and the other of binaries with significantaccelerations of their proper motions. Mathematical relations betweenthe astrometric observables Δμ, μ˙, and μ̈ andthe orbital elements are derived in the appendices. We find a remarkabledifference between the distribution of spectral types of stars withlarge accelerations but small proper motion differences and that ofstars with large proper motion differences but insignificantaccelerations. The spectral type distribution for the former sample ofbinaries is the same as the general distribution of all stars in theHipparcos catalog, whereas the latter sample is clearly dominated bysolar-type stars, with an obvious dearth of blue stars. We point outthat the latter set includes mostly binaries with long periods (longerthan about 6 yr).

Improved Astrometry and Photometry for the Luyten Catalog. II. Faint Stars and the Revised Catalog
We complete construction of a catalog containing improved astrometry andnew optical/infrared photometry for the vast majority of NLTT starslying in the overlap of regions covered by POSS I and by the secondincremental Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS) release, approximately 44%of the sky. The epoch 2000 positions are typically accurate to 130 mas,the proper motions to 5.5 mas yr-1, and the V-J colors to0.25 mag. Relative proper motions of binary components are measured to 3mas yr-1. The false-identification rate is ~1% for11<~V<~18 and substantially less at brighter magnitudes. Theseimprovements permit the construction of a reduced proper-motion diagramthat, for the first time, allows one to classify NLTT stars intomain-sequence (MS) stars, subdwarfs (SDs), and white dwarfs (WDs). We inturn use this diagram to analyze the properties of both our catalog andthe NLTT catalog on which it is based. In sharp contrast to popularbelief, we find that NLTT incompleteness in the plane is almostcompletely concentrated in MS stars, and that SDs and WDs are detectedalmost uniformly over the sky δ>-33deg. Our catalogwill therefore provide a powerful tool to probe these populationsstatistically, as well as to reliably identify individual SDs and WDs.

The radii and spectra of the nearest stars
We discuss direct measurements of the radii of 36 stars located closerthan 25 parsecs to the Sun. We present the data on 307 radii and 326spectral types and luminosity classes for the nearest stars locatedinside the sphere with a radius of 10 parsecs.

HIPPARCOS age-metallicity relation of the solar neighbourhood disc stars
We derive age-metallicity relations (AMRs) and orbital parameters forthe 1658 solar neighbourhood stars to which accurate distances aremeasured by the HIPPARCOS satellite. The sample stars comprise 1382 thindisc stars, 229 thick disc stars, and 47 halo stars according to theirorbital parameters. We find a considerable scatter for thin disc AMRalong the one-zone Galactic chemical evolution (GCE) model. Orbits andmetallicities of thin disc stars show now clear relation each other. Thescatter along the AMR exists even if the stars with the same orbits areselected. We examine simple extension of one-zone GCE models whichaccount for inhomogeneity in the effective yield and inhomogeneous starformation rate in the Galaxy. Both extensions of the one-zone GCE modelcannot account for the scatter in age - [Fe/H] - [Ca/Fe] relationsimultaneously. We conclude, therefore, that the scatter along the thindisc AMR is an essential feature in the formation and evolution of theGalaxy. The AMR for thick disc stars shows that the star formationterminated 8 Gyr ago in the thick disc. As already reported by Grattonet al. (\cite{Gratton_et.al.2000}) and Prochaska et al.(\cite{Prochaska_et.al.2000}), thick disc stars are more Ca-rich thanthin disc stars with the same [Fe/H]. We find that thick disc stars showa vertical abundance gradient. These three facts, the AMR, verticalgradient, and [Ca/Fe]-[Fe/H] relation, support monolithic collapseand/or accretion of satellite dwarf galaxies as likely thick discformation scenarios.

On X-ray variability in ROSAT-PSPC observations of F7-K2 stars
We have analyzed the X-ray variability of dF7-dK2 stars in the solarneighborhood detected with the pointed ROSAT-PSPC observations. Our database is the sample of all stars listed in the CNS3 catalog (Gliese &Jahreibeta 1991) having a B-V color between 0.5 and 0.9; it includes 70pointed observations of 40 distinct stars or multiple systems. We haveapplied the unbinned Kolmogorov-Smirnov test on all X-ray photon timeseries of our sample: only 10 observations relative to 8 distinct starsare variable at a confidence level greater than 99% and 4 of them belongto multiple systems. For the subsample of 9 stars observed both at thebeginning and at the end of the mission, we can study the variability ontime scale of years and compare amplitude variations at short and longtime scales. Our analysis suggests that, for these stars, the X-rayvariability is more likely on longer time scale. All the stars variableon long time scale, and not on short time scale, are relatively quietand similar to the Sun, suggesting that the variations may be due tocycles. The comparison of our results with those previously obtained fordM stars shows that the amplitude of variability of X-ray emission fromdF7-dK2 stars is smaller than that observed in dM stars.

Search for Faint Companions to Nearby Solar-like Stars using the Adaptive Optics System at Mount Wilson Observatory
We present results of a search for faint companions to nearby (d<25pc) solar-like (F and G spectral type) stars using the natural guidestar adaptive optics system on the Mount Wilson 100 inch (2.5 m)telescope during the period from 1996 June to 1999 August. The observinglist, based on the third edition (1991) of the Catalogue of Nearby Starsby Gliese and Jahreiss, at present has 416 entries. To date, about 20%of the objects have been observed under varied seeing conditions. Wehave detected faint visible companions to five of the stars: HD 144287,μ Her A, HR 7123, 16 Cyg A, and HD 190067. The companions of three ofthese-μ Her A, HR 7123, and HD 190067-are new discoveries. Based onobservations from Mount Wilson Observatory, operated by the Mount WilsonInstitute under an agreement with the Carnegie Institution ofWashington.

Evolution of X-ray activity of 1-3 Msun late-type stars in early post-main-sequence phases
We have investigated the variation of coronal X-ray emission duringearly post-main-sequence phases for a sample of 120 late-type starswithin 100 pc, and with estimated masses in the range 1-3Msun, based on Hipparcos parallaxes and recent evolutionarymodels. These stars were observed with the ROSAT/PSPC, and the dataprocessed with the Palermo-CfA pipeline, including detection andevaluation of X-ray fluxes (or upper limits) by means of a wavelettransform algorithm. We have studied the evolutionary history of X-rayluminosity and surface flux for stars in selected mass ranges, includingstars with inactive A-type progenitors on the main sequence and lowermass solar-type stars. Our stellar sample suggests a trend of increasingX-ray emission level with age for stars with masses M > 1.5Msun, and a decline for lower-mass stars. A similar behaviorholds for the average coronal temperature, which follows a power-lawcorrelation with the X-ray luminosity, independently of their mass andevolutionary state. We have also studied the relationship between X-rayluminosity and surface rotation rate for stars in the same mass ranges,and how this relationships departs from the Lx ~vrot2 law followed by main-sequence stars. Ourresults are interpreted in terms of a magnetic dynamo whose efficiencydepends on the stellar evolutionary state through the mass-dependentchanges of the stellar internal structure, including the properties ofenvelope convection and the internal rotation profile.

Photometric Measurements of the Fields of More than 700 Nearby Stars
In preparation for optical/IR interferometric searches for substellarcompanions of nearby stars, we undertook to characterize the fields ofall nearby stars visible from the Northern Hemisphere to determinesuitable companions for interferometric phase referencing. Because theKeck Interferometer in particular will be able to phase-reference oncompanions within the isoplanatic patch (30") to about 17th magnitude atK, we took images at V, r, and i that were deep enough to determine iffield stars were present to this magnitude around nearby stars using aspot-coated CCD. We report on 733 fields containing 10,629 measurementsin up to three filters (Gunn i, r and Johnson V) of nearby stars down toabout 13th magnitude at V.

A Second Catalog of Orbiting Astronomical Observatory 2 Filter Photometry: Ultraviolet Photometry of 614 Stars
Ultraviolet photometry from the Wisconsin Experiment Package on theOrbiting Astronomical Observatory 2 (OAO 2) is presented for 614 stars.Previously unpublished magnitudes from 12 filter bandpasses withwavelengths ranging from 1330 to 4250 Å have been placed on thewhite dwarf model atmosphere absolute flux scale. The fluxes wereconverted to magnitudes using V=0 for F(V)=3.46x10^-9 ergs cm^-2 s^-1Å^-1, or m_lambda=-2.5logF_lambda-21.15. This second catalogeffectively doubles the amount of OAO 2 photometry available in theliterature and includes many objects too bright to be observed withmodern space observatories.

A catalog of rotational and radial velocities for evolved stars
Rotational and radial velocities have been measured for about 2000evolved stars of luminosity classes IV, III, II and Ib covering thespectral region F, G and K. The survey was carried out with the CORAVELspectrometer. The precision for the radial velocities is better than0.30 km s-1, whereas for the rotational velocity measurementsthe uncertainties are typically 1.0 km s-1 for subgiants andgiants and 2.0 km s-1 for class II giants and Ib supergiants.These data will add constraints to studies of the rotational behaviourof evolved stars as well as solid informations concerning the presenceof external rotational brakes, tidal interactions in evolved binarysystems and on the link between rotation, chemical abundance and stellaractivity. In this paper we present the rotational velocity v sin i andthe mean radial velocity for the stars of luminosity classes IV, III andII. Based on observations collected at the Haute--Provence Observatory,Saint--Michel, France and at the European Southern Observatory, LaSilla, Chile.

Loop modeling of coronal X-ray spectra. V. One- and two-loop model fitting of G-type star ROSAT/PSPC spectra
As part of a systematic study devoted to the diagnostic of solar-likecoronal structures in late-type stars, we have analyzed ROSAT/PSPC X-rayspectra of eight main sequence G-type stars in the solar neighborhood.We have fitted the X-ray spectra adopting two different classes ofmodels: the usual two-component isothermal models and the morephysically meaningful hydrostatic loop models. The two-componentisothermal models yield fairly acceptable chi (2) values, however theyallow limited physical insight on the stellar coronal structures; on theother hand, the one-loop model fitting provides unreliable long loops,namely orders of magnitude larger than the stellar radius, in themajority of the cases studied. A more realistic physical description ofthe observed coronae comes from the two-loop modeling approach: twodistinct classes of loops with different characteristics seem todominate the X-ray emission of our sample of G-type stars: relativelycool loops (T_max =~ 1.5 - 5 x 10(6) K) with pressures ranging fromrelatively low (p_0 =~ 2 - 10 dyn cm(-2) ) to high values (p_0 =~ 100dyn cm(-2) ) and hot loops (T_max =~ 1 - 3 x 10(7) ) with very high basepressures (p_0 =~ 10(2) - 2.4 x 10(4) dyn cm(-2) ). We compare theresults and the diagnostic power coming from the different approachesand discuss their physical implications.

Rotational Velocities of Late-Type Stars
A calibration based on the results of Gray has been used to determineprojected rotational velocities for 133 bright stars with spectral typesof F, G, or K, most of which appear in {\it The Bright Star Catalogue}.The vast majority have {\it v} sin {\it i} $\leq$ 10 km s$^{-1}$ and,thus, are slow rotators. With the new calibration, projected rotationalvelocities have been determined for a sample of 111 late-type stars,most of which are chromospherically active. Some of the stars have hadtheir rotational velocities measured for the first time. (SECTION:Stars)

Classification of Population II Stars in the Vilnius Photometric System. I. Methods
The methods used for classification of Population II stars in theVilnius photometric system are described. An extensive set of standardswith known astrophysical parameters compiled from the literature sourcesis given. These standard stars are classified in the Vilnius photometricsystem using the methods described. The accuracy of classification isevaluated by a comparison of the astrophysical parameters derived fromthe Vilnius photometric system with those estimated from spectroscopicstudies as well as from photometric data in other systems. For dwarfsand subdwarfs, we find a satisfactory agreement between our reddeningsand those estimated in the uvbyscriptstyle beta system. The standarddeviation of [Fe/H] deter mined in the Vilnius system is about 0.2 dex.The absolute magnitude for dwarfs and subdwarfs is estimated with anaccuracy of scriptstyle <=0.5 mag.

Vitesses radiales. Catalogue WEB: Wilson Evans Batten. Subtittle: Radial velocities: The Wilson-Evans-Batten catalogue.
We give a common version of the two catalogues of Mean Radial Velocitiesby Wilson (1963) and Evans (1978) to which we have added the catalogueof spectroscopic binary systems (Batten et al. 1989). For each star,when possible, we give: 1) an acronym to enter SIMBAD (Set ofIdentifications Measurements and Bibliography for Astronomical Data) ofthe CDS (Centre de Donnees Astronomiques de Strasbourg). 2) the numberHIC of the HIPPARCOS catalogue (Turon 1992). 3) the CCDM number(Catalogue des Composantes des etoiles Doubles et Multiples) byDommanget & Nys (1994). For the cluster stars, a precise study hasbeen done, on the identificator numbers. Numerous remarks point out theproblems we have had to deal with.

Microwave emission from X-ray bright solar-like stars: the F-G main sequence and beyond.
A sample of F and G main sequence stars and slightly evolved F and Gstars, selected as the apparently strongest X-ray sources in their classas detected in the ROSAT All-Sky Survey (RASS), has been observed inmicrowaves to search for coronae with strong heating and populations ofnonthermal particles. The microwave flux densities were observed withthe VLA at 8.4GHz. Radio emission has been detected from nine targets,in both luminosity classes V and IV. Since known or unknown coolcompanions in binary systems may cause spurious results, we have checkedthe available spectroscopic and astrometric data, including unpublishedCORAVEL observations. There is at least one detected object in each ofthe four spectral and luminosity classes of stars, FIV, FV, GIV, and GVfor which no known companion can be made responsible for the observedemission. A very luminous X-ray and radio source is identified with theF0 V star HD 12230, a member of the Pleiades Moving Group with an age ofthe order of 50-70Myr. HD 129333 (EK Dra), a G0 V target presumably ofthe same age, is detected also, and the X-ray and radio modulationsagree with the optically measured rotation. On the other hand, threevery old stars that are leaving the main sequence and are moving towardsthe subgiant luminosity class are found to be strong X-ray and radioemitters; in the case of HD 20010, an F8 IV star, the hypotheticalexistence of an unknown spectroscopic companion would contradictastrometric data. These stars appear to define a new class ofradio-luminous coronal stars. The observed microwave flux densitiesagree with the ratio of radio to X-ray fluxes of other active coronalstars. We report sensitive upper limits for all non-detections, up to anorder of magnitude lower than in previous surveys. These observationsyield first systematic evidence that stars close to the solar spectraltype can maintain considerable nonthermal electron populations in theircoronae, possibly due to a mechanism that involves coronal heating. Theyprovide the crucial link between the study of the solar corona and ofactive coronal stars (the "solar-stellar connection"), and bridge theremaining gaps on the radio main sequence between the cooler stars andchemically peculiar Ap stars. Further, they support the view that young,near-Zero-Age Main-Sequence (ZAMS) stars are able to continually produceluminous radio emission after their arrival on the ZAMS. The strongactivity resurgence in the sample of old stars moving off the mainsequence may be related to an increase in convective turnover time asthe internal structuring of the stars changes; this is of potentialinterest for the study of the stellar interior of evolved stars.

Reliable photometric reductions to the standard UBV (or uvby) system and accurate UBV magnitudes of bright standard stars from the northern part of the international Be program
A modified method of computer reduction of UBV (or uvby) photoelectricobservations to standard systems, which combines advantages of what hasso far been achieved in this area, is described in detail. A completereduction of over 46000 UBV observations obtained at Hvar Observatorybetween 1972 and 1991, and of nearly 5000 UBV observations secured atSkalnate Pleso Observatory between 1980 and 1987, was carried out usingthe new technique. It is argued that replacing the original Johnson'sUBV values for the non-variable stars that were observed by the meanvalues based on repeated observations over several years and applyingthe new reduction technique can ensure a stable reproduction of UBVmagnitudes, obviously quite close to the standard Johnson's ones, overmany years and from observatories situated at very different altitudesabove sea level within about 0.01mag in all three UBV magnitudes. A listof new accurate mean UBV values of 191 stars which were regularlyobserved at Hvar - and a part of them also at Skalnate Pleso - ascomparison, check and standard stars in the Be- and Ap-star observingprograms, is included for future use by photometric observers in theNorthern Hemisphere. For a number of these stars, we can guaranteesecular constancy within 0.mag01 during the past 5 to 15 years.

Dynamics of nearby multiple stars. The alpha Centauri system
The triple star system alpha Cen AB and Proxima Cen - the component C -is the nearest to the Sun. The study of its dynamics has shown that thissystem is probably not a chance one. The motion of the component C(Proxima) with respect to the center of mass of the pair AB ishyperbolic with the probability P = 1.0. We observe, therefore, a slowpassage of C close to the pair AB. We propose the hypothesis that thissystem is a part of a stellar moving group. We list the probable membersof this group amongst the nearby stars. Amongst them we have thebinaries Gliese 140.1 and 676, the triple system ADS 10288 (Gliese649.1), and six single stars. The probability to find these stars bychance inside the velocity space cube with a side of 20 km/s aroundalpha Cen is equal to about 2%.

G-star astropauses - A test for interstellar pressure
Under the assumption of a solar system model, astropause radii areestimated for a sample of 70 G stars near the sun. G-star spacevelocities and trajectories are calculated. Three stars within 10 pc ofthe sun have predicted astropause radii larger than 6 arcsec. At leasteight stars have traversed low interstellar pressure regions, similar tothe path of the sun, over the last 4 Myr. The Galactic influences onthese stellar systems thus may be similar to those on the solar system,providing a list of possibly attractive SETI targets. The closest starto the sun 4 Myr ago, in this restricted sample, was HD 147513. Therelative dimensions of the astropause radii of G stars with spacemotions parallel and perpendicular to the surrounding interstellarmagnetic field may vary by a factor of 2 and may ultimately yieldquantitative estimates of interstellar magnetic field strength near thesun.

A critical appraisal of published values of (Fe/H) for K II-IV stars
'Primary' (Fe/H) averages are presented for 373 evolved K stars ofluminosity classes II-IV and (Fe/H) values beween -0.9 and +0.21 dex.The data define a 'consensus' zero point with a precision of + or -0.018 dex and have rms errors per datum which are typically 0.08-0.16dex. The primary data base makes recalibration possible for the large(Fe/H) catalogs of Hansen and Kjaergaard (1971) and Brown et al. (1989).A set of (Fe/H) standard stars and a new DDO calibration are given whichhave rms of 0.07 dex or less for the standard star data. For normal Kgiants, CN-based values of (Fe/H) turn out to be more precise than manyhigh-dispersion results. Some zero-point errors in the latter are alsofound and new examples of continuum-placement problems appear. Thushigh-dispersion results are not invariably superior to photometricmetallicities. A review of high-dispersion and related work onsupermetallicity in K III-IV star is also given.

Multiplicity among solar type stars in the solar neighbourhood. I - CORAVEL radial velocity observations of 291 stars
Results obtained on stellar radial velocity of 291 stars of spectraltypes FO to G9, measured with CORAVEL spectrometers at theHaute-Provence and la Silla Observatories, are discussed. The paperdescribes the observational procedure, reduction technique, andvelocity-data calibration and presents a list of individualradial-velocity measurements. Few histograms describing the survey arealso presented.

Multiplicity among solar-type stars in the solar neighbourhood. II - Distribution of the orbital elements in an unbiased sample
An unbiased sample of 164 primary G-dwarf stars in the solarneighborhood are studied with the aid of 4200 radial velocities obtainedduring almost 13 yrs. Several present-day distributions of the orbitalelements are derived. For systems with M(2)/M(1) above 0.1 in the nearbyG-dwarf sample, the following results are obtained: (1) The orbitalperiod distribution is unimodal and can be approximated by aGaussian-type relation with a median period of 180 yrs. (2) The shortbinaries are circularized up to orbital periods of about 11 d due to thetidal evolution effects - a result compatible with the mean age of theGalactic disk. (3) The tight binaries not affected by tidal effects (inthe range between 11 and 1000 d) may reflect the initial binaryformation process, and they have a mean eccentricity of 0.31 +/-0.04.For systems with M(2)/M(1) not greater than 0.1, the proportion of browndwarf companions among the IAU velocity standards is estimated at 10percent of the primaries, a value in good agreement with that found inthe G-dwarf sample.

High-resolution spectroscopic survey of 671 GK giants. I - Stellar atmosphere parameters and abundances
A high-resolution spectroscopic survey of 671 G and K field giants isdescribed. Broad-band Johnson colors have been calibrated againstrecent, accurate effective temperature, T(eff), measurements for starsin the range 3900-6000 K. A table of polynomial coefficients for 10color-T(eff) relations is presented. Stellar atmosphere parameters,including T(eff), log g, Fe/H, and microturbulent velocity, are computedfor each star, using the high-resolution spectra and various publishedphotometric catalogs. For each star, elemental abundances for a varietyof species have been computed using a LTE spectrum synthesis program andthe adopted atmosphere parameters.
